New DJM collaboration with HAMBURGHER group

De Iuliis rebuilt the HAMBURGHER Group Rewinder at Corlu mill, Turkey. The customer has recognized in De Iuliis the right partner to provide the best technology and assistance in rewinder process. In august 2019 the DJM intervened in Turkey, for Hamburgher group to make a modify of their existent rewinding machine. The project was finalized to increase the maximum rollable diameter up to 1800 mm, compared to the current 1500 mm of the existing machine. After an initial survey, De Iuliis proposed a “turnkey” project to make this modify run. DJM made the engineering of the modification, produced all the necessary components, and then with his service specialists provided supervision, commissioning, start up assistance to the paper mill. The project, realized in a record time (only 4 days instead of the 5 planned, working in several consecutive shifts) allowed to reach a final rewinding diameter of 1800 mm with speeds up to 2000 m / min and improving what was the finished profile of the reel, obtaining wide customer satisfaction for the work done by DJM.

Modification of RAIPAPER press section

De Iuliis C&A has completed a new order for the RAIPAPER paper mill in Isola del Liri. The aim of the modification was the reconstruction of the upper structures of the press section, which was consumed by the time. The new structure including felt rounds and stretchers and gangways, made of stainless steel, has been designed specifically to allow future improvements to the machine. The structures were entirely built in the DJM workshops, where they were pre-assembled to be viewed by the customer before being shipped for final assembly in the paper mill.

Underway Press section modify for Cartiere di Trevi

De iuliis is carrying out the press section modify for Cartiere di Trevi, in order to reach better paper properties and machine runnability. The turnkeys order include new press structure and roll, a new couch roll, vacuum modify and engineering of the whole supply. Moving for better quality paper.


Cartiere di Trevi choose De Iuliis for the supply of a new high technology DJM FAST-UNLOADING POPE winder. The new pope reel of the FU series allows the automated unloading of paper rolls on the ground or on transport shuttles, to optimize and speed up the internal logistics of the paper mill and automating all the processes. This order, after the press rebuilt carried at the end of 2020 confirms De Iuliis strong position as a long-term partner for the paper industry and his leadership in paper machine upgrade and rebuilds. The collaboration of De Iuliis has been going on for several decades with CARTIERE DI TREVI, a paper mill with a long tradition, run by a young, highly dynamic management team, with a great propensity for technical and technological innovation. The existing production line that produces board with a basis weight up to 600 gms, a working width of 2,500 mm, and a design speed of 600 m/min for production of colored paper and board made using 100% waste paper as raw material. De Iuliis will install the new DJM FU POPE winder, that will bring the maximum jumbo roll from 1500 mm to 2350mm, with a great increase of production. The aim is to the speed up the roll change with the minimum operator intervention, increasing the safety and the easiness of the operations. This next generation winder will be fully integrated with the paper mill logistic, with the automatic unload of the jumbo roll to wireless electric AGV , also part of De Iuliis supply, that will autonomously transport the jumbo rolls to the re-winder department The new De Iuliis system will interface with the current DCS system of the paper mill, providing a full integration with the logistic and the production, in 4.0 vision. The Turnkey project will include the pope winder, spools, AGV transport system, as well as the modification of the existing De Iuliis unloader in order to accept the bigger jumbo rolls, commissioning and start-up assistance. The job is underway while commissioning is scheduled for the middle 2021.

De Iuliis press rebuilt project for Cartiere di Trevi

It’s going on the long and fruitful collaboration between Cartiere di Trevi, a paper mill with a long history and tradition, specialized in high quality cardboard products, and De Iuliis C.& A., manufacturer of machines and systems for the paper industry that has been operating in the sector for more than 66 years, with a very loyal clientele, both Italian and foreign. Cartiere di Trevi works paper basis weight from 140 up to 600 gsm, with working width of 2,300 mm and design speed of 600 m/min for the production of paper for corrugating, honeycomb paper, recycled medium colored paper and coreboard made using 100% waste paper as raw material, in a perfect circular economy system. His young and active management has made in these years several investments in order to achieve better paper quality and higher production capacity. In the fourth quarter of 2020, De Iuliis carried out a press section rebuilt to overcome previous production limits. De Iuliis design goal had to be the paper width increasing at the pope reel, improving the paper mechanical characteristics and the paper machine runnability, with contractual guarantee on the dryness increasing. A re-design of the press section was made, in order to fit wider press rolls in the narrow space of the existing machine, modifying the rolls positioning and arrangement to optimize the spaces according to the modern concepts. The open draw between the presses has been shortened, to reduce the stress of the paper before the press to generate beneficial effects on mechanical paper characteristics and to have a better runnability of the complete paper machine. Great importance has been given to the choice of specific covers for the new press rolls. After a long and extensive analysis based on the specific Cartiera di Trevi production range, the best ones have been identified and applied. The result was an improvement of the press section Nip with an enlargement of the paper width and a further important qualitative and economical advantage because the higher dryness after the press section. The fourdrinier wire geometry has been also modified with the aim to introduce a new vacuum cylinder which now guarantees higher water removal in the wire section with improvement of dryness before press section and paper machine runnability. Last, but not least, a higher bulk has been achieved. The compaction of the sheet causes a reduction of its thickness; the ratio between thickness and grammage of the sheet, called bulk, is an important characteristic for both printing papers and boards, because with the same grammage, a thicker sheet has greater rigidity and, therefore, better mechanical characteristics. The bulk increasing is one of the most important goal for every paper mill to be achieved, The modernization of the paper machine was a total turn-key project, also included the engineering and the supply of the vacuum system related to the wire and press section modification, complete with erection assistance, commissioning and start-up. Paper Mill manager, Mr. Franco Graziosi, shares his views on the results obtained in collaboration with De Iuliis. Why did you choose De Iuliis for this work? De Iuliis has been assisting us for many years not only as a supplier of plants and machinery, but as an indispensable partner to support above all the search for engineering solutions to improve the performance of our plants. In this case, it seemed natural to us to trust the project which, 7 months after its start-up, has beaten the expected targets by far. What have you achieved with this rebuilt? We expected improvements in dryness exiting the first dryer, an optimization of the manufacturing at higher weights with a better profile and in particular the control of the drainage on the nip. The results have been satisfactory from day one and the characteristics of the paper have also improved. How would you describe your cooperation with de Iuliis? We are very satisfied about the results just reached after this modification and, to confirm this, the end of the continuous machine line (winder-pope) is already being updated by the end of the year. In light of the last and already scheduled projects and what was stated by the Mr. Franco Graziosi we are reasonably confident that the relationship between our two companies will continue and improve over the next few years with great benefit to both businesses

JUMBO Press reamping - Cartiera di Tivoli

De Iuliis (DJM) make successful re-build of Jumbo Roll Press, ensuring safety and performance DJM recently undertook the rebuild of the Jumbo Press at Industria Cartaria di Tivoli paper mill. The project was entirely managed by De Iuliis: from design to construction including assembly assistance and start-up support in order to guarantee the results demanded by the customer. After an initial DJM audit, the old press was found to be precarious from a safety viewpoint and performance well below that desired by the customer.
